2019-11-02Information Day 2019
The 2020-2021 Secondary 1 Admission Talk cum Exhibition was held on the 2 November 2019 (Saturday). About 2000 parents and their children have visited our school. Children’s personal growth and career paths are parents’ top concerns. It is therefore crucial for us to choose the most suitable secondary school for our children. In order to help guests, parents and primary students to have a clearer understanding of our school’s believe and moral values, we have organized a wide range of activities. Student helpers from various subjects have set up booths and exhibition. Visitors can directly communicate with our students to have a more thorough perception of their school life. As an EMI (English as Media of Instruction) school, our school has always emphasized on language learning. Parents were reminded to carefully consider the teaching language before choosing a secondary school for their children. Moreover, our professional teachers put a lot of effort on teaching to make sure students receive high quality of education. To cater for student’s individual development, other than spending adequate amount of time on lesson preparation, our teachers also coordinate different extra-curricular activities to help students thrive. We believed parents and guests already have a deeper and thorough understanding of our school. We sincerely hope that this could be a reference for parents when choosing the most suitable secondary school for their children.
2019-10-15Students' sharing at morning assembly - "Beauty of God’s Creation" by 5 Matthew Law Lok Tin
Good morning Principal, teachers and fellow students,
Today, I would like to share with you the Beauty of God’s Creation. First, I think no matter where we go, the beauty of nature is telling us how good God’s creation is. In Shatin, we are lucky to have some natural environment, and we can see some trees, birds and open space for us to relax and to enjoy the fresh air, actually, the beauty of God’s creation is all around us and magical to behold.
Some people like to admire the beautiful scenery and which indeed manifests how good God is and how perfect He is.
In Psalm 95:4-5, it tells us
In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
God, our Heavenly Father, creates this world for us, not just to dot this world with His power, but to provide us with food, resources and the precious water, to keep us alive and to cleanse us from our sins in Baptism. God is always watching over us, giving us what we need in our daily life and be with us. Only if we admire the beauty and wonders of the natural world, it’s not difficult to find the divine nature of God and His love for us. In St. Paul’s letter to the Romans , it tells us:
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Let us immerse ourselves in nature and the love of God with grateful hearts. Thank you.
2019-10-22HK Soil Biodiversity of Millipedes Project - Opening & Workshop
Our school has become the partner school of Hong Kong Soil Biodiversity of Millipedes Research Project, hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Selected Form 5 and Form 3 Biology students participated in the opening ceremony and the workshop on 22 October. They performed a series of scientific investigations in grasslands near the school campus. The research project aims to carry out the investigation of the biodiversity of millipedes and other soil macrofauna in Hong Kong together with secondary school students, NGO, and university academics. Our students will be participating in the collection and identification of millipedes collected around all of the partner schools throughout a year. Collection sites will be recorded, and specimens will be photographed. DNA will also be extracted, and COI markers will be amplified to ensure the species identity by the university. Findings will be summarised and published as a Hong Kong citizen-science output for the first time.
